    Such an awesome move to do this

  • Never played the first Bayonetta, so I will most likely be picking up the sequel since it includes the previous release as well :) Smart move Nintendo! I will almost certainly buy a Wii U now that I can see your upping your games library :D

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    smart move now people can’t complain *but still will :/

    • Namuro

      Such is the way of the world…

  • Elfaia

    As much as I would loved to support platinum games, there is no way i’m going to buy a console just to play it. I bought a Wii a few years back and I’ve only played like, less that 20 games on it. The selection is just simply not to my liking. I can pretty much foresee Wii U being the same if I buy one as well.

    • Serge

      I know you are mad because you want this game but you don’t wanna buy a Wii U, but nobody cares.

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Let’s handle the response backs with a little less meh. Be excited does not mean needing to be rude. Thanks.

        • I genuinely agree with you…But did you see any lies in Serge’s comment lol?

          • Tienron

            i agree with keiserone there were no lies in his comment.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Did not mention lies. Mentioned how the post was made and its tone. We can’t have an open community if ‘nobody cares’ is the response to a comment regardless of the side it is coming from.

          • Also fully agree and truly respect the dedication of all the mods of the site to maintain a “quality level” (I’m also the culprit of some bloopers lol). However you can’t deny the fact that comments like “nobody cares” will only exist as long as comments like”I refuse to buy a gaming device coz it has an exclusive and I’m a rival fanboy trollolol” exist.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            For which I would say, folks can quite easily make their own judgement about a post which says a system is not worth it when they have only played 20 games on it.

            Some posts are best left unmodded.

          • Elfaia

            Funny just how because I have negative opinion, automatically i’m a hater/ fanboy.

            Thanks mod, for the mature responses to them while I was away. Cheers.

          • Elfaia

            I did say I refuse to buy a gaming console but did you not understand the reason behind it?

            From what I see, the moment you guys saw, “I’m not gonna buy a Wii U…”, you just stop reading and hop on to the fanboy/hater wagon.

      • Elfaia

        Can you not read why I am reserved about buying a Wii U? Maybe you need me to explain word by word?

        If you can’t handle different ideology, I strongly suggest you stop using the internet.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    So many games I want to pre-order and this just lept up the list quite a bit. 2 for 1you say? Sold!

  • Nicky Tetlow

    I hope whoever stood up in the room and said “Why don’t we just bundle the first game in there too” got a standing ovation.

    • Keiji Johnson

      Not only should they give them a standing ovation, they should give them a huge raise AND a promotion for coming up with such a awesome idea!

      • Satori Satya

        This guy:

  • The Watcher

    so many games for october.. my money hurts

  • Brimfyre

    So glad I held off playing the first game.

  • pokeroi

    I knew it’s gonna happen! Even though I finish Bayo 1 this is GREAT!

  • KuroNathan

    I see Phantom is moving up in life, new shell and new bling

  • fairysun

    This and new Zelda.
    I guess Wii U will have a spot on my gaming cabinet :D

  • Guest

    SO GREAT! I loved so much the 360 one so I’m so happy to have it like this :)

  • This is how you handle platform-jumping for games; by offering the previous installments with the sequel. Good call Bayo!

  • Tails the Foxhound

    I was expecting to have to repurchase (the then hypothetical) Bayo1 for Wii U! Excellent move Nintendo/Platinum!

  • vault2049

    Ummm… I suddently want a WiiU.

  • RagingTiger44

    So there are about 8-10 games I want for the Wii U. The Wii U is on my radar.

  • October is my Birthday month. Thank you Nintendo =^_^=

  • zeta

    so much jizzing this night

  • revenent hell

    And with this article 95% of the “Bayonetta being on the Wii U” complaints are cut away.
    Good work Nintendo. Good work.

    • Professor_Icepick

      But the 5% remaining have intensified.

      • revenent hell

        I don’t doubt that for a minute :D

  • lel

    Just went to my local retail store to trow money at the them and assure my copy.

  • Whoop whoop! I can’t wait to play Peach!Netta~!

  • Wow this is great. Still getting a 360 for other titles (was going to get 360 for this game) but good to know the series can get new fans on Wii U.

  • I’m one of the few people excited for Bayonetta 2 that actually didn’t play the first game. That’s mostly because the only other system I have is a PS3, and I heard the port for it was butchered pretty bad. I never owned a 360 simply because I never felt the need to get one, nothing against the system itself because it’s a great console. It’s just that the exclusive games for it weren’t really to my tastes.

    I was going to break down and finally look for a used copy on PS3, but I was holding out for this announcement. So happy they finally did this. Platinum does not deserve any hate for making exclusive titles like Scalebound and Bayonetta 2. This studio works hard at what they do and if a console manufacturer decides to come along and fund a project in exchange for making it exclusive, we can only be thankful that they’re allowed to make the game in the first place. Game development costs money and frankly, Platinum doesn’t owe Wii U owners Bayonetta 1 in the first place, so I’m especially thankful that they’re nice enough to port the game over to the Wii U, especially because it makes an already attractive looking game a better value.

  • MrJechgo

    Please tell me that having a game save file from B1 unlocks some awesome goodies for B2, because that’ll be great ^_^

  • DawnWolf

    Looked great, very happy with this Nintendo. Wii U has caught my attention.

  • Göran Isacson

    Soo, Bayo entering hell to save Jeanne, and using a triple-bladed purple scythe (possibly earned from that scythe-wielding boss instead of getting weapons from Rodin this time around?), a pair of guns that goes on her feet and hands that seem to be this games versions of Durga only it switches between ice and flame instead of lightning and flame, fighting side by side with the little kid (is he the one calling her “luv”, I wonder?), Bayo turning into one of those snake-monsters from the first game, wings that let you hover around, Madama Butterfly versus Gomorrah and Bayo 1 where you can cosplay as famous Nintendo ladies aaand Link. For. Reasons. Yeah, got to admit- this is looking every bit the amazing spectacle Bayo 1 was.

    Also oh man, I just saw that Bayo summons Bowsers foot and wields the Master Sword when she’s in her Nintendo skins. that is amazing.

  • Raltrios

    Excellent move. Once I can get a Wii U, I’ll be grabbing this (since it’ll probably be out before I can get a U T__T )

  • Mwuahahahahahahahaha. Well, Nintendo fans, you can finally get updated with the first game!

    Already played the first one, as many of you know, but hey…. maybe I’ll finally re-play it again. :-D I wanna see the improvements they’ll make for the first one. And then the sequel! :-DDDDDDD


    All right, gonna start saving for a Wii U. Don’t care if my family and friends think I’m a weirdo buying it.

  • keithmaxx

    I cancelled my backorder of Bayonetta 1 as soon as I learned of this. Awesome.

  • Ronldbx6

    Wii U making a great comeback. Finally has a solid lineup of games coming soon or either next year.
